Can my wife take Cefixime as she is suffering from acute cold and cough ?

My wife had acute cold a month back for which she had taken Ceftum 250. Now she has cough and as she took cefurixime last time, she was given a course of Mox 500, but had no result. A doctor prescribed Cefixime. Can she take it now? Will that have effect as she had taken a cephalosporin group medicine last month?

Welcome to Healthcare magic forum,

Taking so many antibiotics in short period of time is not good.
Since she is having symptoms since one month its better to know the proper diagnosis by doing blood test and x-ray and then start the appropriate medications.

Hope I have answered ur question,
